PREVIEW Wales v Cyprus

first_img[dropcap]N[/dropcap]ext time England are playing, remind me to preview the 3.07 at Monmore instead – I might have more luck and it will certainly be less damaging to this columns P&L.I’ve no more to say about last night’s match. I’m completely fed up of trying to work out England I didn’t exactly get Wales right on Friday night either. I thought Bosnia would prove too strong given the lengthy Wales injury list but they did well to hold out for a 0-0 draw in the end.There were good chances at both ends and both keepers played blinders. For Wales Wayne Hennessey made excellent saves to deny Miralem Pjanic and Edin Dzeko whilst the Bosnian keeper Asmir Begovic found two good saves to deny Gareth Bale.Wales are again on home territory tonight for their Group B clash against Cyprus at the Cardiff City Stadium where there will be again a full house.Wales v CyprusEuro 2016 Qualifier7.45pm LIVE SKY SPORTS 5HEAD TO HEAD RECORD(Maximum 10 matches)Oct 2007 Euro Championships Cyprus 3-1 WalesOct 2006 Euro Championships Wales 3-1 CyprusNov 2005 International Cyprus 1-0 WalesSorry to rehash Friday’s comments but the problem for Wales is again the injury list which has now grown to 11 and manager Chris Coleman admits that his side is down to the ‘bare bones’.The latest casualty is midfielder Jonathan Williams who suffered an ankle injury in Friday’s match.Given the injuries, Wales look far too short and I fully expect Cyprus to get something from this. They have shown some good form in their opening two games notably beating Bosnia 2-1 away from home in their opener.They face a Welsh side who have won just two of their last seven home matches.A point wouldn’t be the worse result for either team and at a current 3/1 with Star Sports.RECOMMENDED BETS (scale of 1-50 points)BACK DRAW at around 3/1 for 7.5 points with Star SportsRETURN SINCE START OF WORLD CUP: PROFIT 10.64 POINTSWhat’s your view?
